What’s new in the world of design: March 2018

Innovation, colour and play are at the heart of this month’s global design wrap. New releases, new materials and new concepts take centre-stage as we look around the world at the best and latest in design. From precious phone covers, to quirky pop up markets – take a look…

Tom Dixon’s new additions to SUPER TEXTURE

This year’s Maison et Objet saw a host of additions to legendary designer Tom Dixon’s limited edition textile range: SUPER TEXTURE. New weaves, patterns and colours were introduced via three new categories: ‘ABSTRACT’, ‘PAINT’ and ‘GEO’, while new designs were added to the ‘SOFT’ and ‘BOUCLE’ ranges. In particular, the PAINT range grabs our attention with its abstract watercolour designs created by Josephine Ortega and inspired by “scenes of British urbanism”.

Roxxlyn iPhone covers

Granite, quartz and marble are popular choices for luxury home finishes, but have you ever considered protecting your phone with these ‘rock solid’ materials? Well now you can. Roxxlyn has replaced the typical plastic and rubber phone cases with quarried minerals as old as 350 million years. Now your phone cover can be as precious as the data it protects.

Bisazza 2018 Collection

Bisazza launched its 2018 Collection with new Mosaics, Wood, Ceramics and Cementiles designs, including a collection dedicated entirely to pools and centered around floral designs to contemporary abstracts. Highlights include new designs for the Cementiles flooring collection by American architect and set designer David Rockwell, and nature-inspired mosaic décors by Australian designer Greg Natale. One of our favourites in this year’s collection is the Onde 20 Blu, which was created using an original design by Emilio Pucci (pictured last in the series of images below).

Marni Market
Luxury brand Marni is bringing quirkiness and excitement to Paris, with its ‘Marni Market’ pop up shop. Over the course of five months, the market will continuously reinvent itself, with exclusive products on show. Until mid April, ‘Marni Playful Market’ invites visitors to throw away the design rule book as they discover playful toys, objects and furniture on show – many designed purely for aesthetic rather than function. Then, from mid-April until mid-May, the ‘Marni House Market’ will take over, with wooden, metal and PVC filling the space and showcasing the result of craftsmanship and creativity colliding.
